On CAPS, 87% of the 4,446 members who have rated JPMorgan believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this month, one of those Fools, Googlespooch, highlighted several of JPMorgan's positives:

First of all, they have an excellent management team that has proven itself very capable. In addition to its other executives and management team, JPMorgan has Jamie Dimon who is probably one of the most respected individuals in the entire financial world. ...

Next, JPMorgan is one of the largest banks in the world. Though we all know that this does not guarantee their survival, we do know that this, hopefully, means that it will be able to fend off short-term downturns well and even be able to deal with longer-term issues. ...

In addition, JPMorgan has been able to foresee issues coming at them that many others have not been able to. ...

Finally, JPMorgan has solidly paid dividends even when the U.S. Government was enforcing rules limiting the amount of dividends. As soon as possible, JPMorgan raised their dividend back up to a healthy level with talk of possible further hikes in the value of the dividend.

This is a good company for a play on diversified financial services. They have an investing arm, retail and commercial banking, and consulting services.
